What Is Serzone (Nefazodone)?

Serzone is a medication prescribed to people suffering from depression. Also known by its generic version nefazodone, the medication can be used to treat panic disorder and aggressive behavior. Nefazodone medication should be taken at the same time each day for patients to benefit from it fully.

Serzone (Nefazodone) Addiction Treatment And Rehab

Certain side effects may arise if you start taking Serzone. Common side effects of nefazodone are dizziness, drowsiness, lightheadedness, nausea, dry mouth and constipation. It is important to talk to your doctor if any of the aforementioned side effects persist or worsen.

Some patients experience more serious side effects from their nefazodone treatment, including confusion, weakness, fainting, seizures, as well as easy bleeding or bruising. You should get medical help right away if you start to experience very serious side effects such as black stools, vomit that looks like coffee grounds, eye pain/swelling/redness, widened pupils, vision changes or an allergic reaction to Serzone. Nefazodone also poses specific risks for male patients. If you are a male patient and you start to experience painful or prolonged erections that last four or more hours, stop taking Serzone immediately.

Treatment Options For Serzone (Nefazodone) Addiction Symptoms

If you or someone you love begins to develop a Serzone addiction, certain signs may be shown. These signs include losing interest in activities you once loved and enjoyed, as well as becoming obsessed with finding and taking nefazodone. If you suspect someone you love has a Serzone addiction, don’t delay. The Recovery Village has many treatment options to help you or someone you love start to lead a healthy, nefazodone-free life.

Serzone (Nefazodone) Medical Detox

If you are no longer interested in taking Serzone, speak to your doctor before changing your medication schedule. Never stop taking nefazodone suddenly, as this may produce enhanced, unwanted withdrawal symptoms. After speaking to your doctor, they will most likely want to gradually decrease your Serzone dose over time so your body can respond to less of the medication. If your nefazodone withdrawal symptoms are serious, it is recommended you enter a medically-assisted detoxification program to better handle these effects.

Serzone (Nefazodone) Rehabilitation Programs

Because each patient is different, The Recovery Village has multiple treatment options to suit each patient’s individual needs. The first step in nefazodone rehabilitation is to safely remove Serzone from the body. Patients will be able to receive medical attention while they undergo their Serzone detoxification program at The Recovery Village. Once this occurs, patients can participate in recreational therapy options, receive professional help for coping with co-occurring mental health disorders and obtain information on coping strategies for their life outside of The Recovery Village.

Inpatient Serzone (Nefazodone) Rehab

One type of rehabilitation program offered by The Recovery Village is inpatient Serzone rehab. While participating in inpatient nefazodone rehab, patients will live on The Recovery Village campus at one of its designated inpatient rehab facilities. This is helpful for patients who may otherwise have trouble undergoing Serzone rehab due to distractions from the outside world. Usually, this type of rehabilitation program is reserved for patients experiencing a very serious Serzone addiction.

Patients can participate in individual and group counseling and learn skills to face their individual Serzone addiction challenges while in the inpatient Serzone rehab program.

Outpatient Serzone (Nefazodone) Rehab

Another type of rehabilitation program offered by The Recovery Village is outpatient Serzone rehab. Here, patients can still maintain their daily lives while seeking help and attending scheduled treatment appointments at The Recovery Village. Outpatient nefazodone rehab is usually the second program patients enter after they finish inpatient Serzone rehab.

Here, patients can benefit from individual and group counseling and treatment from medical professionals on how to cope with co-occurring mental health or eating disorders.

Choosing A Serzone (Nefazodone) Rehab Center

Before looking for your Serzone rehab center, talk to your doctor and compile a list of your specific treatment needs. This will help ensure you enter the right nefazodone rehab center for you and lead you into a lasting, life-long recovery.

If you or your loved one is struggling with Serzone addiction or another substance use disorder, get help immediately. The Recovery Village has valuable resources available each day.
